Case discussion: How would you treat this patient? [13 December]
This week’s case discussion features a middle-aged male (a surfer) who presents to my practice for a skin check and complains about his lips. He notes that they have been like this “for months”.
Firstly, what would you do next?
I made a clinical diagnosis of actinic cheilitis, and considered my treatment options. What are they, with pros and cons? What would you do?
– Prof David Wilkinson
I chose PDT with ALA and LED activation. I don’t have a follow-up image as he left for work overseas, but a video call before he left confirmed complete resolution.
We encourage you to participate in the case discussions and submit your own clinical images and questions, so we can all learn together.
